Sigfox is the neural lines transferring the information from the senses to the head.
What is important that our senses don’t send information all the time as they would overwhelm both the lines and the brain. They need to be self intelligent to transfer the information only when it is relevant. When there is some trigger. Where some threshold is reached.
And the same with IoT and Sigfox.
The devices need to have intelligence in order to last long on batteries and not to overwhelm the communication lines and the brain itself.
That is precisely what we try to do at Simple Hardware. In order to make the hardware simple, we developed an elaborate system that enables us to configure precisely the behavior of the SimpleHW devices to fit it snugly to the use case while maintaining the advantage of the mass-produced low-cost devices.
We are happy to announce the completely revolutionary SimpleAPI 6 converting the 12/8 bytes limitation of Sigfox to its advantage. Having limited resources forces you to use smart solutions. You can exploit it using your own IoT platform and is fully supported by our demo platform at www.iofrog.com
And yes we believe that the major differentiation of the Sigfox HW will be on the firmware side. In firmware we trust.
Despite the firmware, we received a tremendous amount of feedback and orders for SimplePack Plus 3.0 and SimpleLeak and you ask where they are. Our aim is to bring the internet style fast development cycle to hardware. And similar to the car industry, electronics manufacturers and suppliers live in a very antiquated world.
Yes, definitely, manufacturing revolutionary products is a hell. We just need to go fast through it and not to stop :). We have 7 weeks slip in the expected production as we were too optimistic. Apologies for not always communicating precisely and timely and we promise to do our best not to disappoint you. We don’t want you to spend time with half baked products.
